same location as my previous Ruins entry for Image Grain challenge. set the camera on the tripod, then walked around the walls popping the flash with 2 different colored pieces of plastic in front.

PP was pretty minimal. Taken in Raw, converted without adjustment. ran Noise Ninja. cloned out about 3 hot pixels. channel mixer layer to make the colors more intense. crop tighter, USM at large radius. resize. USM at small radius. added border.

very nice. I like the small bit of grass that you can see - the strip of green goes nicely with the blue wall. I like the 2 spotlights on the wall - it increases the interest level. I'm not sure about the actual blue colour - I'd prefer a slightly different colour, especially whole the green and cyan colours are great! There's also a cropping issue - the top right of the building is right on the top border and theres a little too much black down the bottom. Great job!

Excellent, I'm not sure about the composition as there is loads of black space at the bottom and very little of interest in the the background. However, I really like the different light colours to create a very interesting building. I think this could have been amazing but it's just excellent :) good work

I really like this image; the blue is very effective, and the light from inside really adds to the effect of the image on the viewer. Good use of negative space in the lower portion, and in using the light from the sky to set off that portion of the image. 9

Love this one. You were too close in some of the shots and we can see you which demerits the image (I thought of 7 when it just opened :( ). Remember to plan ahead this shots so that you can plan where to stand to avoid been seen.

I like the blue cast the light gives to this, with the red light coming through the windows. Still trying to figure out if the wraith by the door is you lighting the structure of something else ...

Great capture - Love the colours - Don't mind you being in the shot. My only gripe would be it's lacking a little in sharpness and I wish the crop didn't cut into the top of the house.

Really great use of warm and cold colours. The compostion and lighting are magnificent. I think I would have left out the shadow of the peron though.

The building looks nice, but the "wraith" kind of disappears in the picture... and the spotlight (?) to the right is a little distracting
